'Nightmare Next Door': Man Murdered By Godson He'd Not Seen In 40 Years

What at first seemed like a fairly routine drug-related homicide took an unexpected and strange turn on "Nightmare Next Door" (Sun., 9 p.m. ET on ID). The series looks at crimes that shock normally idyllic communities in Middle America, and this case from Michigan certainly did that.

84-year old Charles Taylor was found dead in his home, with only his wallet taken. The trail ultimately lead investigators to Paul Pozniak. They suspected he was a drug addict simply looking for money to support his habit. A simple case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

But when they were questioning Pozniak a shocking detail came to light. He claimed that Charles Taylor was his godfather. Allegedly Pozniak had sought out his godfather to ask him for money. It was when he was refused that he killed the old man.

Investigators were able to confirm the relation, but they also found that Pozniak and Taylor had not seen one another in 40 years or so.

Strange twists and turns every Sunday on "Nightmare Next Door" at 9 p.m. ET on ID.
